➡️ Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don't listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don't listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what's behind the words.
In his daily life, people talk to different people in different situations. How many words are not heard again. It is with this word that one can be inspired and again with this word one's life can be made miserable !!
Have we ever wondered for a moment how our words and what we hear from others affect someone's personal life or how it affects other people or what the consequences can be !! If you haven't thought about it, you can watch this movie in time.

Who is behind this kidnapping ??
You will face many more questions like this while watching the movie. You have to watch the movie to know the answers to the questions.
The cinematography of the movie is excellent. The director has portrayed the mystery part of this movie in such a way that you will be forced to watch the movie till the end. Each character is beautifully portrayed. The director has shown the change in the gesture of the character in a moment very efficiently. You will be confused as to which track the storyline is going on. The director will subtly put a lot of tension inside your head. The next task is yours
Allready you can see who has acted in the movie poster !!! Extremely powerful actor and actress.
First of all, let's talk about Xavier Bardem. Mind Buggling is an actor. Those who have seen the movies of this actor Vicky Cristina Barcelona, No Country For Old Man, The Sea Inside, Biutiful know how his acting is. This movie is no exception.
Penelope Cruz has done a great job as a mother. He has acted in some famous movies like Volva, Broken Embrace, Pain and Glory.
Ricardo Derin gave his best as always. Some of my favorite movies starring him - Nine Queens, The Secret in their eyes, Carancho, Wild Tales, Heroic Losers are some of them. The performance of the other characters was quite good.
You will not find anything in this movie as background music. It is possible to capture serious moments without background music. This movie is an example of that. There's just a Spanish soundtrack at the end of the movie that I like.
You will get a surprising twist in the movie! There is an instructive message!
I am a blind fan of Asghar Farhadi. I will not leave out any movie directed by him. He was the first to bring an Oscar to the Iranian film industry with his movie A Separation (2011). The ending of this movie shook everyone's conscience. There were many strong messages. His other movie The Salesman (2016) won an Oscar in the Foreign category. At the time, he rejected the award because the United States had barred Iranians from entering the United States. The number of directors who have won two Oscars in the Foreign Language Film category is negligible.
He also directed some great movies like -About Elly, The Past, Firework Wednesday, Beautiful City, Dancing in the Dust. Most of the movies have a director and a story writer. But he is the story writer of all his movies. Each of his movies has an instructive message. And this is why his movies are so much appreciated !!!
Happy watching !!!
